widen your prepper knowledge base

This month’s issue of American Survival Guide covers one of the widest varieties of topics we’ve put together in some time. On top of that, several pieces provide critical information about topics that can help you get out of life-threatening jams, heal common ailments and make difficult decisions on subjects that can have a big impact on your ability to make it through challenging survival situations. In our recent BUGOUT special edition (available on newsstands or at ASGMAG.com), we discussed the choice of hunkering down or bugging out when the threat level heads into the “red zone.” Because there are many variables and considerations, as with most prepping plans, the answers depend on the case at hand. This month’s lead article takes another look at that topic and includes opinions from…

hunker down or bug out?

It’s a regular weekday morning in your urban neighborhood, but suddenly, everything changes. As you get into your car to drive to work, you turn on the radio and hear officials announcing an emergency in the local area. Maybe there’s an approaching natural disaster. Or perhaps there’s been a chemical or biological attack by terrorists, or an influenza outbreak is imminent. You listen closely to the information, take stock of the situation and begin to consider your options. What will you do? Some people don’t have to think long. Their “plan A,” which has been cemented for years, is to grab their bug-out bag and head for the wilderness. They take the steps necessary to pack up the whole family and begin driving toward the nearest trailhead, with hopes of living…

take your pick

Maybe we’ve all been there: She was cute and flirty. It was late, and her piercing steel eyes were captivating. You went back to her place. Drinks, music; the lights were low. It was her idea at first, and perhaps you thought it would be fun; something different at least. But now, those handcuffs are a little too tight, and she left the room, muttering something about getting your ATM PIN and trying to remember where she kept the flat iron. Amorous delights are quickly being replaced by morbid fear—especially after sounds of her sifting through the knife drawer drift out from the kitchen. You’ve got to escape, but how? METAL HANDCUFFS HAVE BEEN IN USE FOR 1,000 YEARS BECAUSE HISTORY HAS BEEN FULL OF UNSAVORY INDIVIDUALS WHO NEEDED RESTRAINT. Metal handcuffs have…

simple solar fire starter

One of the biggest stresses facing someone in a survival situation is their ability, or lack thereof, to start a fire, because there is a great amount of importance placed on this one critical act. It not only provides light, heat and warmth in cold weather, but it can cook your food, ward off intruders (animal or otherwise), signal rescuers and provide emotional comfort in a potentially scary situation. There are dozens of ways to start a fire—from the ubiquitous, but difficult, rubbing of two sticks together to simply whipping out your handy lighter and torching whatever flammable material is closest. Each method has its pros and cons. You can run out of flint, fuel, gas and batteries, so it is a good idea to have a backup plan. One redundant solution…
